Friday Affirmations — Make your mind

Make your mind a peaceful garden and wander there….

Our garden collageI took these photos on Wednesday which was a most perfect summer day.  The garden is a riot of growth and chaos which comforts me and allows me the freedom to wander through it’s jungle like fullness and feel content.  My mind becomes a peaceful garden when I wander here.  Hope you enjoy it too.
